France's leading football club Paris Saint-German have been ordered to close part of their stadium later this year as punishment for their supporters' abuse of disabled Chelsea fans during their Champions League quarter-final match in April.

A group of disabled Chelsea fans, seated among the home supporters due to a lack of facilities in the visitors' stands, were subjected to a hail of abuse, spat on, and pelted with plastic bottles.

PSG won the match but Chelsea reversed the result in the return leg in London and went through to the next round on the away goals rule.
